We encourage children to see our hygienist from an early age so they can develop good oral hygiene techniques which will continue into adulthood.
We give advice on healthy food and drink to help prevent dental decay. We teach your child how to brush correctly and we remove any plaque that may have built up on the teeth.
We also recommend fissure sealants, a protective coating, on the adult teeth as they appear. We closely monitor the position of your child’s teeth, and will advise you if orthodontics becomes necessary.
Regular visits help children to relax in their dental surroundings and are the key to maintaining a happy, healthy smile!
Removing as little of the tooth structure as possible to maintain the strength and integrity of the tooth.
The level of detail achieved by the microscope ensures accurate location and removal of all infected material for maximum success.
Some root canals become blocked for various reasons and leaving them can markedly reduce the success of treatment. The microscope can greatly facilitate their location and treatment, leading to much improved outcomes.
Hidden root canals, easily missed by the naked eye, can be located and treated.
The magnification achieved by microscope greatly improves the success when microendodontics is needed to retreat a tooth that has an existing root filling.
If a tooth is knocked out, the most important thing is to replace it as soon as possible . The tooth should be picked up by the crown (the part visible in the mouth normally) only. You should not touch the root.
The tooth should be rinsed briefly under cold water to dislodge any dirt. Do not scrub the tooth!
Still holding the crown, place the tooth gently back into the socket. (make sure it is the right way round - looking at the same tooth on the other side will help here.)
If the tooth can't be put back in the socket, the most important thing is for it to be stored properly until you get to the dentist. Milk is ideal, as it simulates conditions in the body quite well. If milk isn't available, water is better than nothing, but don't let the tooth dry out.
You must attend a dentist as quickly as possible. With all dental injuries, time is of critical importance, and will make the difference between possibly keeping the tooth, or surely losing it.
If you think there is a chance you might be pregnant, it is always wise to inform your dentist before you begin treatment. Being pregnant will not prevent you from having dental treatment carried out, but most dentists prefer to defer any elective procedures (procedures that are not absolutely necessary) until after the pregnancy is over. This is particularly the case during the first and third trimesters. The taking of dental x-rays is also best avoided, if possible, during pregnancy, but experts agree that x-rays may be taken, where necessary, in the case of an emergency.
Had an appointment with Dr. Ciara today. This extremely kind and caring Dentist puts you at ease from the moment you walk through the door. She is utterly committed and professional and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I was very nervous and Seamus was absolutely fantastic. I didn’t feel a thing and he kept me really calm and relaxed. Also the lady in reception was lovely to deal with. Highly recommend. Overall a great experience during this pandemic.
I was visiting Tralee and encountered a serious and sudden complication with a tooth infection. A serious practice, who because of their commitment to late hours service, treated me within the hour. A dentist called Ciara treated me. Thank you. Summa cum laude! First class!
Excellent.......from staff to job done. Highly recommended!
